ahnst anders' latest album reflects the personal changes and experiences in his' life since the release of 'many ways'. for a certain period he lived in berlin and the time he spent in germany's agitating metropolis was the desired and necessary main inspiration for this release. the result might be an artistic rediscovery to those who are familiar with his previous works.
being known as a mainly ambient-oriented artist, anders processed the many suggestions he received by applying a rigid intensity, making this album way more solid than anything he has done before. vibes ranging from iciness, disorientation and hatred to euphoria, security and love - the development between being emotively homeless and finding the way home.
as the nine tracks were intended to be connected as a whole, it is highly recommended to play the entire album from start to finish as one. from the dark ambient monolith 'intro' to the sanguine, hypnotic title track and the quiet shores of 'hope & homeless' as an epicenter, 'home' might be interpreted as an aural wave starting and ending on a high peak and having a low one at the centre expressing true dynamics. most tracks on this album are built around varied grooves from dubstep to mesmerizing tribal textures to create astonishing ambiences and cinematic soundscapes with a deeply human feel. 'home' proves to be a very enduring record, on which ahnst anders shows some clear signs of his visionary talent.
